DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
The best full body deep tissue massage is achieved in 90 minutes and 120 minutes because muscles need to first be introduced to touch with compressions and then warmed up with Swedish techniques to prevent muscle guarding/aggravation. Next, knuckles, elbows, and forearms are used in a slow manner while easing into a deeper pressure to properly break down any adhesions (knots). Trigger point therapy is also applied to decrease referral pains. Clients with stress, anxiety, muscle tension, high blood pressure, scar tissue, and decreased range of motion, will really benefit from this modality. Also, DEEP TISSUE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PAINFUL, while it may not be for everyone, it's about going slow, while gradually breaking through layers. I don't 100% believe in the saying "No pain, no gain." In some cases it can be beneficial, but I strive to keep the client relaxed with little or no discomfort.
